Here are some of the beauties still thriving in my garden.

Even though I have had trouble keeping them quenched, they are still trying their best to shine. 

  I guess you can’t keep a good garden down. 

 Thank Goodness!

I Hope your garden is still bringing you pleasure despite the heat and drought of the summer.

 It’s mid July, time to see what’s going on in our gardens for Garden Blogger’s Bloomsday.  It’s also Fertilizer Friday!

I have a lot blooming,


so it makes it hard to believe my yard and gardens are showing the stress of very little rain

and extremely high temperatures.

   My grass is brown in spots

and some of my plants have given in to the heat and lack of water.

But most are doing great!


So those are what I am sharing today,

 the resilient plants that continue to flourish despite the conditions.


So I have a few empty spots that would normally be lush and full,

but that’s okay because everywhere else is alive with color. 

Somehow that makes it seem a little bit cooler outside.

Happy July!~”Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it.”  ~Russel Baker
